In 2009, George Jones recorded a new version of this song with Jamey Johnson and the southern rock group Blackberry Smoke. "It was intimidating, to say the least, as he was the world's greatest country singer," Blackberry Smoke lead singer Charlie Starr said in his Songfacts interview
. "But he was very gracious and a jolly fellow. We got the work done quickly. It all happened really quickly. I wish that it had lasted longer, actually, but it was just one afternoon and then he finished it and said goodbye."
At Jones' final concert at the Ryman Auditorium (June 14, 2009), Starr joined him onstage to perform this song.
